Well...I often experiment with certain cooking things. I made a Big Mac dip for nachos once and ever since I've been trying to experiment with food to recreate that magic. But have failed at every turn. Today's mediocre effort: *Marinated Striplion Steak Surprise on a bed of heavily buttered rice* Here's what I did, or should I say...here's how I failed. I took a frozen Striplion Steak and dethawed it in the microwave. I poked it several times with a fork when it was thawed. Then I made a marinade that only a madman would throw together: Mazola Oil (three cups!) Frank's Red Hot (ten dashes) Tons of salt and pepper Garlic salt, lots of it Worchestershire sauce (Not much, just a dab) Parmesan cheese (The real stuff, not cheap plastic can stuff) Zesty Italian dressing (Lots of it) Soya Sauce Italiano spices Browning Sauce (For that wonderful black color that people love when eating) Mixed it well in a glass loaf dish. Threw in steak and wrapped it all in plastic. Let it sit in the fridge for 2 hours. Flipped the steak. Let it sit for another 1.5 hours. Cooked a couple cups of rice, put it to one side to stay warm. Pre heated oven to 425 and threw the sauced up steak in a turkey roasting dish and went to cut my hair for 25 minutes. Flipped steak then waited another 10 minutes. Took it out and it was still slightly red in the middle so I got worried and fried it a little on a pan. I overcooked the fuck out of it. Chopped it up and threw it on a huge bed of rice. It kind of reminded me of something that might taste good but not quite there yet. The rice was perfect but the steak was overcooked and the Zesty Italian Dressing overpowered the taste of the steak. Almost though....almost.
